Coos Bay, OR – Southwestern Oregon Community College will be facilitating a free information session regarding Southern Oregon University’s satellite teacher preparation program. The presentation will be held virtually on Zoom, Tuesday, October 20, 2020 from 5 pm – 6 pm.  

The educational partnership between Southwestern Oregon Community College and Southern Oregon University is opening the door for new teachers in the coastal region. Students from Newport to Brookings have been taking courses through a satellite program for the past three years, and the second cohort of student teachers is in area schools today. They are earning their bachelor’s degree in elementary education and their Oregon teaching license without leaving the region. There is also a process for people who already have a bachelor’s degree to earn a teaching license.
